The project CORIUM is presenting now a lava-like mixture of industrial, musique concrète and ambient atmospheres.
The heterogenous nature of the CORIUM is based on a tension field which is generated by the two founding members Michael Schaffer and Matt Weigand. The musical roots of ambient and studio artist and guitarist M.Schaffer are located in projects such as Birdmachine, Indian Tree Pie or Monoflow and vary from experimental abstraction to a clear harmonic form. Nearly standing opposite to his rather musical approach is the intonation of non-musician M. Weigand. His early musical education ocurred via 7 Minutes of Nausea, End of Silence and XQM.
While Schaffer is co-running the label for ambient and free sounds named opa loka records, Weigand is the owner of ecocentric records, well known for its harsh and noisy obsessions.
Common to both members of CORIUM is a gift to fill the room with sculptures made of tones and frequencies - this room is simply shining in the blaze of the CORIUM ! The structures are yielding in an unique complexion of constructing/desconstructing euphony and -due to their will for transcendency- are interferring with entchanting additives to put the listener onto a magic journey alongside the dreamtime.
So please be prepared to get melt down - and listen to the Corium!
